    Additional Skills

    I am athletic and have good movement skills: dance, stage-combat and stunts ( to an extent) are all strong areas and I maintain my fitness and strength.

    Strong swimmer and good driver. Experience with outdoor pursuits.

    Former County rugby player.

    Journalism and 'story-telling' abilities.

    Additional Information

    I have had a varied set of work and social experiences which feed into my drama and illusrate an ability otherwise to adapt. I have worked in a remand centre, been a member of the UK's oldest lay community which also functioned as an international college, and lived on a Greek island for nearly 3 yrs. I have also spent considerable time on the earthy enviroment of the building-site to maintain physical fitness and picked up some other skills along the way 'Rugged' is my key condition.
